Lomi Lomi Massage Basis I - 30 hrs CEU
A 4 day immersive experience into Lomi Lomi Massage.
This hands-on course is designed to introduce participants to the massage technique known as Temple Style Lomi Lomi.
You will learn the Hawaiian Wisdom which is the foundation and lies at the heart of this traditional work. Working from the heart and channeling the wisdom of those who have done this work before us, to generate profound levels of healing and awakening of the body mind and spirit.
In Temple Style Lomi Lomi your whole being is accepted and honored in its natural unity. By aligning with divine, unconditional love and acceptance (aloha) whose source is within, the Lomi Lomi practitioner creates a sacred space of nurturing love, peace, and safety in which the recipient is invited to completely trust, let go and receive, or become one with what is, in this moment (Ho‘oponopono – the practice of coming into alignment with truth).
You will learn a way of thinking designed to gently shift your awareness and deepen your sensitivities. You will learn a grace and fluidity and how to bring the lightness of movement to your work and to the receiver on the table.
This course teaches everything you need to complete a full 90-minute Lomi massage. In addition you will also learn the history of Lomi massage, the basic principles of Hawaiian wisdom, and a practice known as "flying", where you learn to move with fluidity and grace as an integrated part of the treatment.

Experienced, intuitive, therapist and NCBTMB instructor, focused on relaxation, stress reduction through traditional western as well as Hawaiian philosophies. Trained at the well respected Bancroft School of Massage (Worcester, MA) as well as the Gantke Schule (Germany) under Mr. Robert Gantke, one of the pre-eminent practitioners of Kahuna bodywork and Lomi Lomi in the world today. Robert learned from IIima Margareta Kappl, who learned it from Kahu Abraham Kawai'i. Thus is my Lomi lineage - as close to direct as is possible today, with the passing of Kahu Abraham (who along with Aunty Margaret Machado, first introduced Lomi to non Hawaiians)
I have studied with the esteemed Elaine Stillerman, the mother of modern pregnancy massage under whom I received my Pregnancy Massage, Prenatal and Postpartum Care Certifications.
In 2021 I took over the groundbreaking Full Chest & Breast Massage Course from Barbara Helynn Heard.

While the term simply means “massage” is Hawaiian, lomi lomi is a massage modality based on ancient Hawaiian healing techniques. It places heavy emphasis on long, flowing strokes, rhythm and approaching every client with love and acceptance. You will find several different approaches available through lomi lomi CE classes, and course focuses range from deep relaxation to clinical applications.
The basics of lomi lomi can be picked up through a brief introductory course. The emphasis on rhythm and flow can help any therapist improve their sessions. Longer courses will help you master mind-body healing, but immersion courses and retreats are recommended for massage therapists that want to offer the most authentic lomi lomi sessions they can offer.
Boston may be one of America's oldest cities, but it has the vigor and vibrancy of a college town. Check out a free summer concert or soak up American history on the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail. With boutique shopping on Newbury Street, Sox games at Fenway Park and some fantastic breweries, there's never a shortage of things to do.
For visiting bodyworkers, Boston's universities offer a wealth of medical and integrative tools to explore. Their Osher Medical Center, a collaborative effort between Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Woman's Hospital, offers clinics and public seminars on topics like mindfulness-based stress reduction and integrative headache treatment. Just leave the car at home. The traffic is a nightmare, and Boston's trolleys, buses and subway are some of the best in the nation.
